How about Thomas Kinkade?

Decorating a new home is a journey, not a destination. I think you can live with the present light; it isn't awful or ugly. Once you get furniture and do some living in there, you will have a better idea of what you want anyway.

Its a pretty room. I hope you have years of enjoyment there.

I had horrible lighting fixtures when I moved into this place. Absolutely hated them and they were much uglier/awkward than yours. ;-) If I have learned anything from rushing to buy things it's DON'T when you don't have to. It took me a long time to find a ceiling fan that I thought was aesthetically pleasing to my eye (because I find most of them hideous) and I did a lot of looking until I finally found one that I liked. I still have one more light to change out. Haha.
Re: ceiling fans, I agree completely and I have done the exact same thing. It literally took me two years to find the one I wanted and it was beautiful.

OP, in the long run and in the end you will be so happy if you can be patient and get exactly what you really want!
